Remember “Ten Things I hate About You”? While we can't all get our sweethearts to sing this song to us while running away from security guards during our soccer practice like late Heath Ledger did, dancing along to this song is a close second.

2. I Will Always Love You by Dolly Parton

Most romantic lyric: “I wish you joy / And I wish you happiness / But above all this / I wish you love”

Whitney Houston may have popularized this classic love song, but we have Dolly Parton to thank for gifting us with this gem. The country singer-songwriter penned and recorded this bittersweet single two decades before Houston sang it for the Bodyguard soundtrack.
